about fox. the week barack obama was sworn in 2009, both bill elo'reilly and sean hannity were given four year contracts. i was praying for mitt romney to get elected. i'm going to buy a boat if he gets elected. fox, it sounds better as the hate obama network than the defend romney network. so aren't they just providing the entertainment and denial their fans demand? >> absolutely. it makes me laugh too to reference back to george w. when george w. was in office, you're either with us or you're against us. now the right is going how dare obama say we sacrifice our personal needs for the group effort, for the good of the team >> they make such a big deal about fiscal responsibility and bill clinton balanced the budget. as you'll remember, fox news in the late '90s was nothing but them praising bill clinton. never said a bad word. >> john: bill clinton is the real fiscal conservative. moving on to something we can all agree on regardless of their political persuasions, tsa is getting rid of the body scanners ending the virtual strip searches is. this really a software issue or did they
the notification this week from boeing, which said deliveries will be on schedule for april. president obama is expected to go along with a debt limit measure being considered by the house. the house plans a vote today on a measure that puts the debt limit increase on pause until may, but allows the country to continue paying its bills. in the senate, democratic and republican leaders are hinting at getting down to the real business of pounding out a budget. "not a single piece of important legislation can pass the senate or become law without the votes of both democrats and republicans. so we'll be willing to compromise and work with our colleagues across the aisle." "if we don't work together to control the debt, the cost of our interest payments alone will eventually crowd out funding for things we all agree on, from defense to infrastructure and assistance for those who need it most." in other legislative news, the house has already approved a $50-billion aid package for hurricane sandy relief, and senate majority leader harry reid said yesterday the senate could move swiftly to pass it.
the senate. president obama is going to serve second term that is the message this week in washington, right? at the inauguration and the parade and the fancy dress dances and the obamas showing off at the white house with the dog. but away from washington, outside the beltway, republicans are working fast right now to use their power in the states to make it so that democrats structurally cannot win no matter what. joining us now is donald mckeachen. senator, thank you very much for your time. it's great to have you here. >> thanks for having me, rachel. >> were you surprised by how quickly republicans in your state passed these new maps? did you know this was coming? >> absolutely not, rachel. you know, we asked for a heads up back in november if they were going to do this. and we were sure we would be given the heads-up. in a span of literally 40 minutes, because they limited debate. literally in 40 minutes, they rewrote 40 senate districts without any input from the public, without any input from my side of the aisle. they rammed it down our throats. even though it was daylight outside,
in the concrete, common sense recommendation that president obama adopted earlier this week as you know him as the mayor indicated. i worked closely. a number of my cabinet members and representatives of 200 groups of experts organizations, policymakers and private citizens help formulate this plan from law-enforcement leaders to firearms owners said lucius, technology experts and then safety advocates for retailers to mental health professionals, members of the clergy, victims of gun violence and members of the entertainment industry. they were wide-ranging and inclusive than the consensus that emerged was clear. i put if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this island, it even one life that can be saved, we have an obligation to try. this obligation as such are the administration to propose a range to remedy along with 23 executive actions to begin mass shootings and prevent gun violence. on wednesday, president upon the same direct is a proposal was. others require legislation that will be in congress and we hope will receive timely consideration. every level of the administration
look forward to interrogating him at his hearing next week, mercilessly. we will bring back for the only time waterboarding to get the truth out of him. >> jocularity about the kerry hearing but tougher time for chuck hagel. president obama's nominee to be secretary of defense. senator mccain met with hagel yesterday and said the two had a frank and candid conversation ahead of next week's confirmation hearings for hageh. >>> joe biden beginning his second term as vice president, and he is keeping a close eye of possibility on moving down the hall to the bigger office. it's been widely reported that the president appeared to be in high 2016 campaign mode throughout inauguration weekend. mr. biden said it is too early to think about that, but he's not taking his name out of the running. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> there's a whole lot of reasons why i wouldn't run. i haven't made that decision. i don't have to make that decision for a while. >> so you ready to run against hillary clinton in 2016? >> i haven't made that judgment and hillary hasn't made that judg
a straightforward factual point. that is, that the american people were lied to and why to consciously by the obama administration, not four days, four weeks. to have her sit there in that chair without performance, political theater. some may find it amusing. i find it alarming that this administration is setting forward a legacy for itself that looks to me as though it will be the most dishonest low-paid deceitful administration since the nixon administration. lori: we do care. lou: who could not care? lori: of course you do. melissa: what she said is what difference does it make. lou: if it did not matter, why did the administration lied to the american people for three weeks? why do they continue to withhold information about what transpired and who is responsible amongst, how did she call it, a federation, a affiliates of al qaeda which suggests a very loose understanding of what al qaeda and other organizations through north africa, the middle east and southern asia represent. it is really very stunning stuff. melissa: she talks about what difference does it make, it makes a huge difference.
which went for president obama the republicans overwhelmingly retained their house seats. sick and tired of the congressional gridlock steve cohen of memphis introduced a bill this week which would require states to use independent redistricting commissions in drawing those maps. here we in to talk about his bill and what he expects during president obama's second term, is congressman steve cohen. welcome to "the war room"." >> thank you good to be with you. >> michael: do you think they would or could pass this bill. >> whether they would is doubtful but it's an important bill because we have gridlock and the reason for that is too many districts are concerned about the primary and the far right and far left and they don't have to work with the whole community or the center, because of the partisan redistricting which we have in most states are drawn up just to suit their people or make them overwhelmingly ohio. ohio went for the president. ohio went to sherrod brown but yet 12 of the 16 districts drawn up by the ohio legislature were republican. that's not right. it does not reflect th
daying in the union. "new york times" reports that president obama and prime minister cameron talked about the issue on the phone a week ago. >> time for a check on the forecast. mike? >> checking out tweets and cold weather in new york, so cold the rails are snapping because of the tension induced by the coldness shrinking the rails. this cold air is bypassing us. the rockies protected us from the cold air spilling to us. we have had our fair share of cold air the last ten days with forecast each morning. this morning? not so were. clouds but in rain. from the southeast to the roof camera and to the port of oakland, you can see the north bay, where we have a better chance of sprinkles on 29, 112, 37, 101 and from novato and headed to sacramento. again, the bulk of the steady and heavy rain over the ocean in the form of yellow and oranges there. that will work its way eastward toward us so enjoy the dry weather while we have it. mid-40's to low 50's oakland and san francisco and half moon bay at 52 and the warm spot with mountain view at 50 and monterey at 51 and salinas at 52 and gi
inauguration this week, mr. obama, his aides and congressional allies know their window of opportunity narrows with each passing month." jeff, fascinating. there's so many things to talk about here. let's start, though, first with the realization because it's so important, they do realize, then, that their window narrows every month and basically by the midterms, they're coasting to the end. >> and i think some people in the west wing aren't even sure they have until the midterms. they know they have 2013 or they hope they have 2013. one problem is always unexpected things happen that the white house isn't even thinking of right now. in reporting this story, we found out that president obama is actually aware of this. he is more self-aware than i perhaps thought he was on this. he's been looking at george w. bush's early part of the second term. but the question is what are they going to do about this? they do have a lot of things on their plate with gun control. how much are they going to push this? senate democrats, as you've been saying all morning, are their biggest problem here. >> can yo
from harm. and that means safe from guns. president obama is asking is congress to approve his sweeping gun control plan. but can it pass? let's go back to jake tapper. i understand the president will be meeting with some members this week. >> that's right. he'll be reaching out to members of congress. this is a big part of this campaign for gun violence because he has a narrow margin of support among the public for his proposals. in a gallup poll from january 17th asked would you tell your congressman to vote for president obama's proposals to reduce gun violence? yes, 53%, no 41%. but here's what's really interesting about these polling numbers and this is why president obama is going to take his show on the road and have more of that campaigning that he did in 2012. support for gun measures, for gun control measures has declined precipitously since the shooting. in december, for instance, 78% support for gun registration, it's now 69%. those numbers are going down as we typically see after a horrific event like this, there's a big spike for gun control measure, then that goes down. p
, coalitioned, he'll have a difficult challenge, it looks like in the weeks ahead to create a coalition. >> yeah, he certainly will. again, i think what the perception of animosity between him and president obama hurts him a great deal domestically, and i think in terms of -- you have a white house here that says that israel doesn't know what's in its own best interest. i think we can trust the israelis to know what's in their best interest, but it doesn't help benjamin netanyahu and the perception among israelis to have their most important ally take that tone with him. lou: very quickly hit upon what to expect in your judgment from secretary clinton as she testifies before the house and the senate tomorrow. >> well, i think you're going to get a lot of testimonials from the democrats about what a wonderful secretary of state she's been, which will have the effect of chewing up a lot of the time. hopefully, she'll get blunt questions about benghazi. if it was the 1970s, everybody in america knew the question, what did the president know and when did he know it off the top of their heads. here i
want to do background checks, but there's things obama could have done that he didn't, such as constricting the sales of guns one to a week. if we're talking about absolutisms, we have to ask, does wayne lapierre support no background checks, is he comfortable with mentally insane people buying grenade launchers? i don't think anyone, including virtually all of the nra membership, is comfortable with no regulations whatsoever, but that's what wayne lapierre, i thought, was saying last night. >> what is strange to me and somewhat disconcerting, it's not just wayne lapierre that is forwarding this kind of language. this is an e-mail from mitch mcconnell to his supporters. "dear patriot, you and i are literally surrounded. the gun grabbers in the senate are about to launch an all-out assault on the second amendment. my friend, our freedom is on direct assault. from those who want to shred our constitution, and as our good friend rand paul from connecticut says, from those who want to be king." it's worth noting that was written by jesse benton, who used to work for rand
.beginning now. catherine heenan is here with more on the president's busy week. sieger o >> catherine: to say it's busy is an understatement. president obama is dealing with everything from cabinet appointments and the fall- out from his inauguration speech. and then there's the debt ceiling. things are not going to be dull. no one was particularly surprised today when republicans began bashing the president's inauguration speech. he offered a liberal vision - touching on and preserving the social welfare safety partisan and aggressive. >> "the era of liberalism is back.unabashedly far left of center inauguration speech" >> catherine: white house cameras caught the president and first lady surprising tourists at the white house today. it's not usually part of the tour. but then it was back to work. one of the first tests of the president's second term comes quickly this week. chuck hagel - his choice as defense secretary has to win over hostile republicans. there's a senate hearing this week. john kerry on the other hand - is expected to breeze through his thursday the cho
's happened in the last couple of weeks or so, republicans caved on taxes on new year's eve. i think obama peeled away 85 republican votes on tax hikes. what happened to this once, you know, rock-solid g.o.p. caucus even paul ryan voted with the president on that their bluff has been called on the debt ceiling. we don't want to shut down the government. so, it looks like republicans are fighting among themselves. so this debate is already underway in the republican party. >> yeah. the. >> the president understands this. that combined with the 332 electoral votes he got, i think he is in a stronger -- i think he is in a stronger position now than he has been probably in four years. so he has less incentive now to be mr. nice than he has in quite some time. i think we are seeing that. >> right. i was going to say, i think we see that he senses that as well. >> yeah. >> he feels that he is projecting it. i don't know whether -- i forget whether you were there the day he announced his measures on gun violence for example. >> yeah. >> that was straight o here is
of americans who can't find work. you know, it's funny, a week or so ago, the "new york times" and other publications agas at the snub of ben affleck, but the job market and the economy was snubbed yesterday by president obama. gerri: right. well, you know, it's almost, i mean, the list of things he's interested in are so divorced from the day-to-day needs of most americans. it's almost astonishing. >> well, that's right. look, we've had a 7.8% unemployment rate, and, of course, if you include discouraged workers, it's well into the teens. this is not a strong economic recovery at all. it is a glacial economic recovery. president talks so much about global warming. i wish he would talk about the glacial recovery. pace it, by this time, gerri, the economy, it's not his field. he's interested in basketball. he's probably got pronouncements about the super bowl coming up. gerri: not one you or i put at the top of the list, probably, like developing green energy on the public dime. i mean, let me ask you this, though. let me ask you this. he said the economic recovery has begun. do you agree
